We're located in a subdivision called Timberland Acres just 8 miles outside of the town of Show Low off of Hwy.260. We have a number of lakes in the area as well as hiking trails. We're just an hour's drive or less from Petrified Forest NP in Holbrook and the Painted Desert. Fort Apache is an easy drive as well. The Grand Canyon is 3-4 hours away so it's a 2 day trip most likely. We're close to Sitgreaves National Forest on the Mogollon Rim, trails for quads and ATV riding in the area. Horses are welcome. We're in the tall pines/oak forest with cedar and juniper trees at 6300' elevation our summers are mild--we get snow in the winter, so best to check the weather.
No smoking, in summers when driving in the area be careful of dragging safety chains as sparks start fires.
We do have an enclosed fire pit that can be used--not exactly a fire ring. We have a dog-run that's fenced for dogs to be off leash.
Generators off by 10 p.m. is appreciated.
No rush to leave, we're retired, the patio, picnic table area can be used and enjoyed. Our dog may bark at you for a bit until she realizes you're okay to be there--we have a young dog, 1 year old—Peaches (the barker) is in the house quite a bit or in and out.
State highway turn-off and then paved to the driveway which is cinders or gravel. Good access---but not a lot of maneuvering space, probably have to back in or out using driveways across the road from our house. Best for units under 30' probably due to turns--in the trees.
We have a 1 acre lot with 3 driveways-- and the main drive in the middle has extra parking spaces. We have our 25' trailer in back, but an RV can park in front of that and is probably the best place for water hookup. We don't have a septic hookup, just power & water. Tow vehicle can also fit in that driveway or in our middle driveway.
Fool Hollow Lake, Rainbow Lake, Show Low Lake, numerous hiking trails, Petrified Forest, Painted Desert, Fort Apache, Hon-dah casino many other lakes, ponds and good birding areas.
I stayed at Diane and Tom’s for two nights and enjoyed myself so much! They helped me get oriented to the area - even gave me a map with lots of local hikes. We ate dinner together one night - both Tom and Diane are interesting people with some fun stories. They went above and beyond with their hospitality.
I appreciated meeting Down Abe’s sister as well - another solo female camper.
I feel I made friends the last two days.
Boondockers Welcome is exceeding all expectations I had when I joined.
Oh - and the ponderosa forest region of AZ is really beautiful. Great weather and fantastic hikes all over.
Timberland acres was a beautiful quite peaceful place with elk, deer and wild turkeys walking past several times a day. Our hosts were friendly and kind and offered brochures and maps of the area. I tried to get some replacements for them at the chamber in Show Low but they were closed till 2021. Thanks for the great time.
Had a wonderful time in Show Low, and our hosts were truly exceptional. They provided us with brochures of the area, and my wife fell in love with Peaches, their pup. We were able to put some water in our tank, and I gained some good info on the solar setup they have on their home.
Our hosts are preparing for a trip of their own, and we can only hope they have as good an experience on the road with Boondockers Welcome as we have had with great hosts like them!
This couple should write books they have done everything and seen everything They should write books wonderful wonderful host wealth of information from realestate to construction . Trailer backup into their driveway but tree covered and lovely
We had a nice stay outside of Show Low. Diane and Tom greeted us an offered water for filling out tanks and 110 electric hook-up. We had a nice walk with our dogs in the neighborhood. Our 28 ft. Trailer was a bit tight and we had a bit of a hard time maneuvering it in so we could put our slide out. All in all a nice stay!
Our Hosts made us welcome and comfortable. There are several attractions and lots of outdoor activities in the local area. Our Hostess had brochures for many of the attractions. We had two full days of touring, exploring, hiking. Thanks to our Hosts for a great stay.
Diane and Tom were very friendly and accommodating, even chopping off a few tree branches to allow for our 25 ft RV. They also provided electricity and water. It was very peaceful and quiet. Thanks!
had a great stay, thank you. Had fun playing with the dog. Am gonna miss her! Enjoyed visiting and sharing information. Hope to stay in touch! Thanks again!
